Sunny Joy

Ive always loved piecing together room designs with found items that don’t necessarily match perfectly! (This also helps stay on budget! 😉) I knew I wanted the room to feel warm, bright, cozy, and fresh while incorporating a mid century modern vibe that she could continue to grow into!
At the time I designed my daughter’s nursery, there were several Word Markets closing and you bet I took advantage of their liquidation sales! I found a pendant light that quickly became the center of my vision for the room as well as the perfect comfy and neutral swivel chair! The Anthropologie curtains were another favorite find!
I purchased the crib online and found the dresser on marketplace which, with a little elbow grease, a new top which I converted to a diaper bin, and some fresh hardware, became one of my favorite functional pieces in the room!
I found a few images from Pinterest including one image from a Society6 artist which inspired my mural.
And I designed a banner on which I hand painted her name with a pampas grass wreath for a personal touch.

Mid-Century Twin Nursery

After finding out we were pregnant (surprise), we were surprised again to find out it was twins!  When we found out we were having twin boys (after already having three girls), we were thrilled to be able to design a boy nursery for the first time.  I love neutral but couldn’t miss this opportunity to incorporate some blues and more masculine wood tones and metals.  My husband loves mid-century modern, so it was a no-brainer for us to use that style as inspiration for the boys.

Modern Soft Boho Nursery

I designed this modern, soft boho nursery for my client expecting her 3rd child and first girl! She wanted a wall of wallpaper in a subtle design to bring in color to the room. So we found this beautiful pastel pink speckle removable wallpaper from Livette’s Wallpaper. This inspired the direction for the color palette. We went with all white for the crib and changing table/dresser for a modern feel. We layered in pattern with this soft printed crib sheet from Crate and Barrel and fun shaped metal and wood mobile. The wall decor is simple. Framed prints mixed with a cute peg board for organization. Overall the look and feel is cozy, simple but fun. My client loved the final reveal.

Wildflower Mermaids

Combined my daughters two favorite things to create her first big girl room of her dreams!!

Sebastian’s Costal Nursery

Sebastians costal nursery. I wanted to create a special space for my baby boy due in February. This makes number 4 for me, so with it being my last baby I was inspired to go above and beyond to create something beautiful. It’s been a minute since I’ve created a boy nursery. I’ve been creating girl nurseries for the past 5 years. The ocean and beach are my happy place and I knew I wanted this room to have that feel. I started with the name sign first. I wanted to display his name in a unique way. I thought what better way than a surf board. Luckily I found a company “Marker Six” on Etsy that made my vision come to life.  My in laws just purchased a home in South Carolina. While visiting, I saw this beautiful wallpaper in one of the rooms. The blue and white, and mix of flamingos with palms are what did it for me! It was so elegant and costal. I loved it from the minute I saw it. I do have to give credit to my MIL for the finding. Once I found the wallpaper and name sign , everything else just fell into place. I started mixing boho decor in and beige tones. It really added warmth and made the room feel cozy. I am so proud of this nursery. It’s bittersweet that it is my last!

Surf’s Up 🌊 Toddler Room

Beach vibes only ✌
When you live in Illinois, winter can be depressing and gray. I wanted my son’s room to be bright and cherry with a tranquil beach vibe — surfer style it is! 🏄‍♂️
The walls are Sherwin Williams | Glimmer SW6476 — and it’s the perfect shade of cheerful and chill. The pictures above his crib are from Target and they come as a set. The floating shelves are from Ikea for $4.99/ea. The stackable wooden bins are also from Target and great for books and toys. I am still working on a gallery wall for above his dresser. Hang tight– more to come!

Baby Boy’s Nursery

This is our first nursery that I created. I had a vision in mind of his nursery being a place of calmness. I knew that when baby boy entered this world, it was going to be a long and wild ride — especially in the first few months of his life with very little sleep — therefore, I wanted a place in the house that we could go to, to relax, where I found a peaceful setting to nurse Noah, and bring fond memories to come. I am so pleased with the outcome of this nursery, and it is so loved already!

Golden Safari Baby Shower

First and foremost, thank you to my wonderful mother and Aunt for bringing my vision to life! Since my son’s nursery was modern safari, we decided do the same with my baby shower theme – hello, GOLDEN SAFARI! We used the wall pictures bought for his nursery as the shower decor, which saved $ and the decor and it was multi-functional!
Wall decor links provided in his Project Nursery gallery “It’s a wild world”.
We searched Amazon and found plastic toy safari animals in various sizes that we then spray painted in a bronze color. Also on Amazon were giant faux palm leaves that we used on the tables, around centerpieces, as well as hung throughout the event space. What better centerpiece than a real pineapple?! It was a perfect idea because the pineapples made for the most affordable centerpieces and guests were able to take home and eat! We kept the cupcakes a simple vanilla with a white Italian buttercream and topped with an animal cracker. We displayed Ferrero Rocher chocolates with pineapple crowns on an elegant porcelain tiered dessert stand. I loved the modern black & white striped table runners! They truly complimented the gold table accents and tropical faux foliage. I remember the moment I stepped foot into my shower – my eyes were the size of saucers. I was in awe. It was everything I imagined of and more. Wish all you expecting mamas that same magical feeling at your shower!
